Wrist - annotated carpal tunnel view


In the carpal tunnel view, the palmar surface of hand is placed in contact with the cassette which is placed at the table margin; and the wrist is dorsiflexed approximately 135 degrees.

A vertical beam is used, centered to an approximate midpoint of the dorsiflexed wrist.

The film in this projection demonstrates an axial view of the hook of the hamate, as well as the pisiform bone and the volar margin of the trapezium.
